As part of the guided tours, you will discover more about Hull’s maritime heritage and how the exciting maritime project will take shape over the next four years, delivering a brand-new maritime experience. Stops will include the exterior of the Hull Maritime Museum, the future location of the Arctic Corsair at North End Shipyard and the exterior of the Spurn Lightship in Hull Marina.

Councillor Daren Hale, Leader of Hull City Council, said: “This is an exciting opportunity for volunteers to play a key role in developing Hull’s tourism offer, revealing the city’s maritime heritage.

“The guided tours will offer people the chance to find out more about the exciting future plans to transform some of our maritime treasures, thanks to our major funders – The National Lottery Heritage Fund.”
